Search for fugitive believed to be ring leader of drug smuggling operation

Posted: Updated:

Authorities on both sides of the U.S. border want a fugitive off the streets.

They are looking for Khaophone Sychantha.

The 32 year old may have led a large-scale smuggling operation that supplied millions of ecstasy pills and hundreds of pounds of marijuana.

The drugs were delivered to distributors in Michigan and five other states.

Sychantha also allegedly directed individuals to smuggle millions in cash, guns, cocaine and heroin from the U.S. into Canada.

He was indicted, but disappeared before formally answering to the charges.

Authorities believe he may still be somewhere in Michigan or the Midwest.
